Nvidia has been releasing their small die chips first and pricing them out at $500+ since AMD stopped being able to compete after Fermi.
Nvidia is going to milk ever last ounce of wealth from us that they can. The only other option hasn't delivered anything to compete since 2010.
AMD has been riding Crypto for years now. It can't last at this rate, something has to give. They need to close the GPU gap like they have started to with CPUs.
It's only when Intel/Nvidia are pushed that we see real innovation. I can't wait to see how Intel responds to gen 3 bulldozer, they need a real response because AMD is that good. We need the same thing from AMD on the GPU side, otherwise we're going to continue to get bleed out by a duopoly where one company is clearly creating inferior products.
Edit: I have a 1660 Ti, which I bought several months ago and it is still the most efficient GPU on the market today for my res. AMD was always my choice because of their efficiency, how ironic is it that we are now trying to downplay our carbon footprint for gaming because AMD no longer has this segment on lock? Pretty sad IMO, just shows how deep the fanboyism goes.
